A church in Masinga, Machakos county, was closed indefinitely following public buzz that worshippers undress during prayers.
Masinga deputy county commissioner Muraya Mwangi said there had been an outcry that women who attend the church undress before being prayed for.
Investigations contacted revealed that only women were allowed to attend the Healing Ministries Church services and there was no specific time for worshiping
Mwangi said some women were recently found naked in the church when the Ekalakala chief and residents raided it.
He added that the pastor runs the church illegally.
Ekalakala Town Business Community chairman Duncan Mutua said the pastor has been caught several times praying for nude women inside the church.
According to source, women spend a lot of their time at the church and even attend night worship.
We recently stormed the church and caught the pastor pouring water on a naked woman in the name of praying for her,” Mutua said.
Church pastor Joseph Wambua dismissed the allegations saying it was a “witch-hunt” to bring him down
“All these problems have been caused by some chiefs who have been demanding some bribes from me,” he said
Wambua said the church is genuine.
